From Emile Woolf, 1 January 2017:

May I take this opportunity to wish you all a very stimulating musical year. No fewer than 10 concerts are already scheduled, all involving musicians of the highest calibre, performing some of the greatest chamber music in the genre – and I suspect that they will all be oversubscribed. So please respond to my offerings sooner rather than later!

As most of you already know, the next concert is on Saturday 28th of this month, when we shall host a true “Schubertiade” – comprising my personal selection of some of Schubert’s greatest lieder, which will be brilliantly performed by that fine baritone John Barker and his pianist wife Helen Cawthorne.

Even though there is a month to go, we have only eight places left, and it would be good to fill them before Anita and I head off for our annual break in the Algarve next Saturday!

Please look in your new diaries and let me know as soon as possible whether you wish to be here to partake of the first 2017 Maxability concert! Please see the original concert posting for full details.
